Finally - Facebook is getting its own dark mode - Details here


Following the footsteps of leading technology giants and social networks, Facebook has started working on a dedicated dark mode for its main app.

The feature has long been requested by users of the service, and now, reports have indicated that it has gone into testing, presumably, with a goal to launch sometime in the coming months.

Here's all you need to know about it.



Dark mode Dark mode for Facebook spotted in testing

Recently, popular reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong shared a post confirming the development of a dedicated dark mode for Facebook's main app.

She spotted it the under-the-works capability in the Android version of the Facebook app, was able to take a look at it and grab a few screenshots giving a glimpse of what it would look like.



Looks Shades of grey, black, white for different elements

Going by the screenshot shared by Wong, who has a history of reporting accurate in-development features, the dark mode will use various shades for highlighting different elements of the Facebook app.

Most of the background would likely be painted in black and dark grey, except the topmost section featuring icons for notifications, profile et al. It would have a white background and black icons.

Availability No word on when it would be available

The feature has been spotted, but as of now, it is not clear when it would be enabled in the Facebook app.

To recall, the service is already in the process of getting a major facelift with a new logo and a cleaner, white-ish theme.

This interface will downplay the news feed and put your communities, groups, and events, at the center.



Dark mode From Slack to Twitter, all apps have dark mode now

Once the dark mode is available, using Facebook at night will be much easier.

However, the company would be very late in the arena as almost every popular service, from Twitter to Slack, has already introduced a dark mode of their own.

Even Google and Apple has introduced a system-wide dark mode into their respective mobile platforms.
